Phoenix Roof Collapse Accident Attorneys
Construction sites have many serious injury accidents as well as fatal injuries that occur, many of which come from roof collapse. The entire roof, or sometimes the ceiling, will collapse due to a structural failure which can lead to very serious injuries or even death. Construction sites are very dangerous because of the nature of the business. Based on reports, 1 out of every 10 construction workers are likely to be injured. These reports are from the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, commonly known as NIOSH. In 2005, it was said that there were 1,224 fatal construction injuries. Fatal construction site injuries are higher than any other business field.
Many construction sites have procedures and policies that are not safe which can cause roof collapse and construction site injuries. Although workers compensation may be available to an injured construction worker, the laws for workers compensation do not give injured workers enough money.
